Product Description

The 1930s saw the rise of hand built model race cars, known as spin dizzies or tether cars. Miniature race cars built by hobbyists zoomed around banked wooden tracks at speeds approaching 150 miles per hour. Resembling the full-size racers of their day, several spin dizzies competed at once, tethered by cables to a central pole. Powered by model airplane engines, spin dizzies raced against the clock. Incredibly detailed and aerodynamic, these miniature race cars were beyond toys; they were pieces of art representative of the best pioneering technology of the era. Constructed using original blueprints the Bantam Midget model resembles the original down to the smallest detail.

DIMENSIONS: 48 x 22 x 18 cm
